Banquet (20+ Guests)
Chris Jakubiec of Hutch Supper Club and Chef Leah Eveleigh, a local Denver Chef, help usher Filipino cuisine, which has so many influences from other cultures, into the 21st Century! What do you get when you combine Leah's extensive knowledge of Filipino cuisine with Chris's artistic presentation? A beautifully constructed modern take on Filipino classics! Lots of pork, tropical fruits and vegetables, and of course, RICE! Come join us as we celebrate all the best food the Philippines has to offer! Kain na!
Pork & Shrimp Lumpia
Filipino Egg Rolls with Sweet Chili and Spiced Mango Sauce, served accompanied by Green Papaya & Jicama Salad with Kalamansi Aioli, Carrots, Onion, Jalapeno, Spring Radish, Frisee. We're kicking off the meal with one of our favorites, lumpia! The Filipino street food staple is accompanied by a fresh salad for a light starter.
Lemongrass, Ginger, Soy, Spiced Vinegar, Thai Chili, Herb Salad, Quail Egg A Filipino delicacy made from pig cheeks, ears, and belly. All of the pork is slowly simmered in a simple broth, herbs, aromatics and spiced vinegar until tender, then char grilled for smokiness and crunch. The pork is tossed with Thai chili, Kalamansi juice and spiced vinegar, and then topped with soft-boiled quail's egg. This is considered a delicacy because of the amount of work put into this particular dish and the time it takes to prepare. Well worth the effort!
Beef Short Ribs, Filipino Peanut Sauce, Eggplant, Bok Choy, Green Beans, Coconut Rice Another "delicacy" based on the amount of time it takes to prepare and cook, Kare Kare is typically made with oxtail. However, short ribs provide a very similar texture, flavor, and fat content and are much easier to eat for a nicer dinner! The slow-simmered short ribs are napped with a sauce made from their own broth blended with peanuts, coconut milk, ginger, and garlic. And of course some rice to soak up any extra sauce!
Pork Belly Adobo
Marinated and Slow-cooked Pork Belly, Soy, Garlic, Jalapeno, Crispy Rice Probably one of the most well-known Filipino dishes, pork belly is marinated and simmered in soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, onion, bay leaves, and jalapeño until knife-tender. A crispy sushi rice cake provides a contrast of texture and baby radishes complement the earthiness of the adobo. The dish is finished with fried shallots and garlic, with additional spice provided by radish sprouts and sliced jalapenos.
Cassava Cake Brulee
Cassava, otherwise known as yucca, is the base of this sweet Filipino treat. The latin American influence in Filipino cuisine is evident here, as this dessert is almost like a cross between a cake and a flan. Rich and moist, the sugar in the condensed milk creates a bruleed, caramelized exterior. The sweetness is offset slightly by a bittersweet chocolate ganache and lime zest.
Deconstructed Filipino Parfait
Coconut Flan, Ube Mousse, Fresh Mango, Coconut Chantilly Cream, Candied Spiced Walnuts Not necessarily traditional in presentation, this dessert is definitely Filipino in flavor. Coconut flan, mango, and ube (a Filipino tuber very similar to taro or apio), presented for the guests to combine to their taste, a visually appealing and mouth-watering finish to a fantastic meal. Masarap!!
